This week FootyMad's match preview focuses on the game between West Ham United and Fulham at 15:00 on Saturday, 2nd October 2010 in the Premier League.
Fulham face a trip to West Ham United at Boleyn Ground on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Cottagers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 21 and win only 10 of the 41 games.
